What is the flashpoint of 200 proof ethanol?
Answer: The flash point of 200 proof ethyl alcohol is 14 °C or 57.2 °F
- The flash point is the temperature at which point the flammable chemical compound gives off sufficient vapors to ignite in air.
- When the chemical compound is below the flash point, no flammable vapors are released.
- Manufactures, suppliers, and the NFPA use the flash point measurement to determine a liquid's flammability rating and hazard class.
- Some state rules governing ethanol may instead reference the material as "a substance with a flash point below <<target temperature>>".
- The higher the concentration of alcohol, the lower the flash point of the compound.
- Anhydrous means "no water" and is another word to describe 200 proof alcohol.
